English Nr. 193 Poezie

On earth

galya popova_literomania




There was a quiet call
of the wind
when the walls came
tumbling down.

The copper tray was
collecting every memory
it had seen on earth

and suddenly there was a
view for what is wrong.

In front of us, on the
dry waste land
all sorts of animals
were running in all
directions, as they
couldn‘t find an
end or a beginning.

Yet, we started and didn‘t
stop counting the
grains of sand.
